Lara Eakins from the U.T. Department of Astronomy will tell us all about how solar eclipses have been observed and predicted through the centuries and the role they have played in broadening our understanding of astronomy and physics. We’ll also talk about safe solar observing and things to look for during the April 8 eclipse!

*This is a Zoom AND In-Person presentation. Please let us know your preference (located in the registration field) so we can have a good idea of how many plan to be here. There is limited space for only 30 for in-person attendance. These will be honored to the first come (register) first serve.
